Paper Abstract

It is well known that data obtained from measurements of turbulence intensity, wind velocity profiles, and temperature at the altitudes of 10 - 15 km signify the zones of sharp changes near the tropopause. In this context it is essential to distinguish the footprint of the aircraft from characteristic of nondisturbed turbulence. So this work is still continue in the following directions: atmospheric characteristic at altitudes of 10 - 15 km, turbulence characteristic at altitudes of 10 - 15 km, characteristic of aircraft foot prints under conditions of real flight. And direct measurements of turbulence and refraction are performing in a plane footprint at the ground level. We are assuming to construct the model of atmospheric turbulence on the high-elevated paths along the long distance propagation.
